Raymond compiled a list of London genealogies in 1997.[1]

Boyd's Inhabitants of London and Family Units (1200-1946) groups thousands of Londoners into families. The entire collection is available at the subscription website Find My Past (£). Much of the collection has been converted to a lineage-linked database and annotated by FamilySearch, see: Community Trees - Free.

For genealogies of Londoners who held coats of arms, see London Heraldic Visitations.
